GMO Insulin Shuts Down The Pancreas In Type 2 Diabetes Escalating Patients To Type 1, But You Can Avoid It

2017-02-21 19:30

GMO Insulin has been shown to accelerate Type 2 Diabetes to Type 1 Diabetes, a study finds.

While you may have a choice avoiding GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) at the supermarket, you don’t have a choice avoiding GMOs if you have Type 1 or even Type 2 diabetes.

Try spring water with a twist of lemon instead of binge drinking to save your liver

2017-01-22 07:17

Researchers say if you think that binge drinking is safer for your liver than regular heavy drinking than perhaps you should stop and think this over again.

Binge drinking is a trendy thing to take part in for college students at fraternity parties and other party goers.

Coffee reduces liver cancer risk for heavy drinkers

2015-03-29 18:47

People who drink three or more alcoholic beverages per day could be increasing their chances of developing liver cancer.

But drinking coffee could lower a person's odds for liver cancer, even among heavy drinkers, according to a new report from the World Cancer Research Fund.

FDA-Approved Hepatitis C Drug Sofosbuvir Called a "Game Changer"

2013-12-07 12:41

A pioneering treatment for chronic hepatitis C has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and it is expected to be a “game changer” in that it will be the first all-oral, interferon-free therapy to use sofosbuvir, a first-in-kind nuceotide analog inhibitor with dramatically high cure rates.

Coffee Cuts Liver Cancer Risk and Much More

2013-10-25 06:40

You can reduce your risk of liver cancer every time you drink a cup of coffee, according to Italian researchers. While a new study explains this potential benefit, coffee consumption can be good for your liver in other ways as well, and the benefits of that cup of java don’t end in that organ either.

Did Steve Jobs Have a Liver Transplant?

2009-06-20 10:21

Many of the major newspapers are reporting that Steve Jobs, the chief executive of Apple Inc, received a liver transplant about two months ago. There is no confirmation of the report by either Jobs or Apple.

It is known that Jobs, 53, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer five years ago. In January Steve Jobs handed the day-to-day reins to Tim Cook. At that time, he said he would be away from the job until the end of June.

Targeting Tumor Behavior Leads To New Liver Cancer Drugs

2009-06-20 08:27

Ohio State University cancer researchers have used computational and genomic methods to identify possible anti-cancer agents that may block a particular kind of tumor behavior. The agents target multiple genes associated with that behavior at one time.

The researchers wanted to find agents that might reverse the gene changes associated with invasive liver cancer and perhaps stop liver tumors from spreading in the body. Such therapy could greatly improve patient survival, the researchers say.

The findings are published online in the journal Cancer.

Genetic Analysis Predicts Whether Liver Cancer Likely To Recur

2008-10-27 08:17

Researchers are poised to unlock the genetic secrets stored in hundreds of thousands of cancer biopsy samples that are in long-term storage and previously thought to be useless for modern genetic research. With the aid of a new technique developed by Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers, scientists can now reconstruct thousands of genes that are "shredded" into tiny pieces when tissue samples are treated with a chemical fixative and stored in wax - a protocol commonly used to preserve tissue samples indefinitely.

Liver cancer associated with good post-transplant outcomes

2008-09-04 23:57

Patients with liver cancer can become viable candidates for transplantation if their tumors respond to treatment, a new study suggests. This report is in the September issue of Hepatology, a journal published by John Wiley & Sons on behalf of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). The article is available online at Wiley Interscience (www.interscience.wiley.com).

Nexavar Improves Liver Cancer Survival Rates

2008-07-25 09:03

Nexavar drug is found to improve survival rates in liver cancer patients.

A joint team of researchers from Hospital Clinic of Barcelona and Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) Group has examined 602 advanced liver cancer patients who were divided into two groups: one group was taking Nexavar - sorafenib, the second group was taking a placebo.

In 'Spontaneous' Liver Cancer, Researcher Sees a Cure

Adding more good news to last week's announcement that Nexavar (sorafenib) may be the first effective treatment for advanced liver cancer, researchers at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University have uncovered a new molecular mechanism that may "spontaneously" cause liver cancer.
